Our Values: We are what we publish
The HoneyTree story began in July 2008 when artist and co-founder Lizbeth Holstein, sitting in her studio in South Africa, began battling feelings of homesickness by drawing those little things she missed and which reminded her of home: like green wellies, umbrellas and Agas.
As the walls began to fill with her beautiful artwork, her continued prolific output meant that many more illustrations were relegated to the family’s garage; at which point her husband Sebastian realised that not only did they need to return home, but that these drawings held an intrinsic – and therapeutic – value to Lizbeth and needed to be shared.
On their return to the UK they began catching up with old friends and family and after each visit Lizbeth would send uniquely hand-illustrated ‘thank you’ cards. Soon friends began asking where they could get such beautiful and individual cards for their own correspondence. And so Sebastian began to understand that people still wanted and needed to hand-write messages of thanks, of love, of appreciation, and that electronic communication would not always do. He saw an opportunity for people to express their message, create their own beautiful bespoke stationery and bring his wife’s work to a wider audience…and so HoneyTree Publishing Limited was born.
What drives us
At HoneyTree we understand the thought that goes into a written message. That a sentiment expressed on paper can be more heartfelt, honest and authentic.
We also understand an individual’s need to express their message in his or her own way, and therefore our mission is to continually encourage creativity in our customers. It is very important to us that our customers can express their individuality through our stationery portfolio, creating correspondence that is not only personalised but personal.
We love inspiring people with our collections of exclusive illustrations and artworks, and collaborating on unique commissions where there is truly no limit to the imagination.
We believe that there is no tension between convenience and luxury or convenience and thoughtful; with HoneyTree your message can be all three. Personalised stationery has a place in everyone’s life.
How we give back
Empowering artists is something that Lizbeth is passionate about. Having experienced life as a ‘career artist’, selling her illustrations to various companies including Marks and Spencer, Habitat and The General Trading Company, she wanted to ensure that artists were recognised and fairly rewarded for their work.
Hence why at HoneyTree all of our artists are profiled and celebrated for what they do and receive a percentage every time their illustrations are chosen.
All of our artists are part of the HoneyTree community because they share our values of authenticity, freedom and fun and their work fits naturally with our creative aesthetic. Most importantly, they produce work which resonates with our customers.
We would love to hear from any artist who would like to potentially work with us. Please email: email@example.com
In addition, we also support a number of charities that are close to our hearts.
